Set Default Canvas Background Color

My company works in dark theme. Every time I create a new Canvas I have to change the background color which can become annoying.

You can do it on Sketch quite easily.

  1. Select Canvas, modify. Then go to Object >> Set Canvas Style as default.

Hey @James_McLain1,

Thanks for the feedback! We’ll pass this along to the team for consideration.

For clarification though, the default background color of the canvas is determined by your current theme, so if you’re using dark mode, it should default to an off-black color #1E1E1E. When creating a new page in an existing file, the background will be the same as the current page. More info here:

I would LOVE this feature. I have to change my canvas and section backgrounds every. single. time. and while it’s only a few clicks, it’s a few clicks I really wish I didn’t have to do.
